1970s Ecru High Neck Cut Out Maxi Dress with Cape, by John Marks and Anne Tyrrell, 37in Bust
Wow, how amazing is this dress?! It has a cape!! A CAPE!
Made in the 1970s for John Marks of London by Anne Tyrrell, this ecru cream beauty has a wonderful drape, the soft lines caressing where they touch. The bodice is tight and flattering, the V-neck showing a hint of cleavage while you stay secure in the nice full pleated cups. The high neck is classic of the decade, a little hint to the Victorian influence the 70s loved so much. But the best bit is the cape! From the front, it looks like a flattering flutter sleeve, but the back is the most epic full pleated cape which floats as you strut. Warm the dress with gold accessories for a Grecian vibe, or why not choose this as the most awesome Wedding dress ever?! Who doesn't want a cape on their biggest day?

Due to the drape, it is not noticeable and can only really be seen if you hold the fabric flat. All shown in photos.
